SAFETY & SECURITY
The safety and security of our fans, exhibitors, guests and staff is our priority. Please plan ahead and note the following guidelines to help us deliver a safe and fun experience for everyone.
Our Props Policy can be read in its entirety here, but the top-line info is:
- If it's not legal on the street, it's not legal at FAN EXPO Vancouver. Authorities will be on-site to deal with any illegal items.
- Metal props (guns, swords, etc.) and wooden props (baseball bats, 2x4's, etc.) are not allowed.
- Plastic props are typically allowed.
- Bows and slingshots are to be unstrung. Nerf guns and other foam bullet-type toys are not to be loaded.
The final decision on whether a prop is permitted inside FAN EXPO Vancouver rests with Security. There are no refunds given if you are turned away for not adhering to our policy.
COSPLAY IS NOT CONSENT
If you would like to take a picture with/of another FAN EXPO Vancouver attendee, always ask first and respect that person's right to say no.
When at FAN EXPO Vancouver, please be respectful and kind to each other.
